Alice Cooper Discusses Plans for Iron Maiden Tour

(hennemusic) Alice Cooper will be joining Iron Maiden for the band's "Maiden England" tour this summer. Alice will team up with Maiden for the first month of shows –from June 21 to July 21 – before Coheed & Cambria step in to open for the UK metal masters.

"Those guys [Maiden] are really good friends of ours," Alice tells Rolling Stone. "When you've been out for five decades on the road, there's a whole section of the audience out there that have heard of Alice Cooper but never saw Alice Cooper. So an Iron Maiden audience is a great opportunity for us to show them what Alice is all about. We do more theatrics now than we did back then."

As for his plans for the Maiden tour, Cooper says "You have to do the hits. The audience would kill you if you don't do 'Eighteen' and 'School's Out.' But then we've got to do stuff from the new album. And then you have to get what I call the underground hits – the real Alice aficionados want to hear those songs. Once in a while you throw a cover in there. We do a pretty mean 'Brown Sugar.'" Following the Maiden tour, Alice has plans of his own.
